I'm Challenge Challenged!

That's right, when I see a challenge, I must attempt it! I keep up on two message boards, The Stamp Shack and SCS. The CT over at The Shack has started Color Challenges on Friday and I am compelled by my own sick, twisted, addicted mind to go forth and create!! Who cares about breakfast, lunch or dinner. Not I. When the gauntlet is thrown down, I must pick it up. Is there no help for this rubber stamping obsession which has taken over my very being? Perhaps I'm being just a tad melodramatic, but it was fun!

So, the first challenge I completed today was for SCS LCS116. We were to use one flower stamp, no 2-step stamping. It could be just one flower, a bunch of flowers, with a creature, without a creature, etc. as long as it was just ONE stamp. We could use up to 3 colours of c/s, brads, ribbons, flower punches, etc. Here's my take on this Limited Supplies Challenge. The flower stamp is Inkadinkado, the b/g is SU's Polka Dots & Paisley. I used VersaMark and black embossing powder on the flower and sentiment which is from Papertrey Ink and Versafine for the b/g. The only embellishment are the Jazzybrads. I thought this turned out alright for a sympathy card. What do you all think? I'd love to see your comments as my DH didn't like it!

This afternoon I sat down to do the colour challenge for The Shack. We were to use Certainly Celery, Almost Amethyst and Cameo Coral colours. I chose this cute little lamb from SU's Everyday Creations, mounted on Certainly Celery and Cameo Coral, used a punch also from SU, added a couple of brads. The sentiment is by Gina K Designs which can be purchased from The Stampingfreak.
Well, that's what I've done with my day today. I'm just challenged! Have a great weekend, everyone!
